This recording is another ground breaking project from this famed classical-jazz- crossover virtuoso of the bassoon, Daniel Smith, and features incredible musicians and influences of the likes of perennial jazz critic poll winner trombonist Roswell Rudd, famed Brazilian guitarist Sandro Albert, and outstanding Latin percussionist Neil Clarke, featured for many years with Harry Belafonte.

Daniel Smith is highly regarded as a bassoonist on the classical side and several years ago he burst onto the jazz scene. He made a splash not only because of the unique placement of a bassoon in jazz but his fleeting improvisation has been right on target. Daniel’s tone is sweet, if that is possible from a bassoon, but we think he’s found an excellent fit with the Latin program.
